PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction

SUBSCRIBING TO SOCIALISM

Free
 
Has a whole new meaning
 
The Radical
28th Oct 2018
 
Subscribe means either …….
 
1. arrange to receive something, typically a publication, regularly by paying in advance.
 
2. express or feel agreement with
 
And I spent my youth being freely encouraged to belong,

 
to Number 2 by my elders
 

 through radical ideas that capitalism was bad,

 
greedy and a something for nothing society.
 

That socialism was the land “flowing with milk and honey”

 
and could be achieved through struggle.
 

But I prefer to call it  COMMUNICATING with people ,

 
the word comes from Commune.
 

A good Socialist principle.
 
And that is what my Websites will continue to achieve freely.
 
“To talk together to interchange thoughts or feelings”
 
 and I don’t see how that can be achieved by asking

 
readers to pay for something by trying to sell it to them .
 
 
SOME THING THE MORNING STAR HAS HAD

 
TO DO BECAUSE IT HAS FAILED TO

 
COMMUNICATE, BECAUSE INSTEAD HAS CONCENTRATED ON BEING

 
ELITIST AMONG LEFTISTS AND IS PAYING THE PRICE.


IT HAS FAILED TO CHANGE FOR ALTERNATIVE POLITICAL IDEAS.
 

 
BUT  I AM NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF SELLING SOCIALISM.
 
If people want to give freely that is different and acceptable
 
Even though some see achieving Socialism peacefully while

 
others rejected that, and insist it can only come through revolution.
 

And now we see that if you want socialism you must pay for it.
 
That is what the Morning Star want you to believe.
 
Having made the mistake of sticking with the printed copy

 
when others all around were closing their’s,

 
and changing its recognised brand image name , the” Daily Worker”  to a 
 

nondescript title, the Morning Star, (is born) that gave me the believe

 
that “worker” or working class was no longer an acceptable term,

 
it continues to do the ridiculous, 
 

which is to try and imitate the paper  online.
 
Instead of making an online 24 hour socialist news service

 
in the form that internet technology allowes, it just 
 

published the online edition with the printed paper’s material,

 
which must have reduced further the papers popularity, to the extent that

 
today it is no longer viable without a subscription to the online edition.
 

The age old FREE TO GIVE, Fighting Fund not being enough.
 
I say this because with a little ingenuity,

 
an online website does not cost the earth so the Morning Star is using the

 
Online service to make a profit and to keep the paper alive.
 

I can understand that the Online edition should be used to recruit support, 
 
be what the elders did all those years ago, providing socialist education
 
with a social touch,because the online edition cannot socialise itself directly,
 
 but can encourage people to join together.
 
Strange really because JC has spread the word

 
through talking directly as a disciple, something

 
other Parties are struggling with. 
 

“When two or three are gathered together in my name”,

 
was turned on its head by Jeremy.
 

Yet the Labour Party with all its finances secure

 
has no media station of its own pumping out

 
propaganda, which seems strange considering the media vilification it

 
receives from the Capitalist press.
 

As it has little supporting media come back,

 
JC will just have to keep foot slogging Labour to keep up the momentum.

 

This Radical has tried to show by example.
 
 People in History.co.uk  a precis of A Peoples History of England

 
by A.L. Morton has offered the reader the story from Primitive Communism

 
 and the Cowcatcher.co.uk is a back up site to Rightsandwrongs.co.uk which

 
has tried to embrace the subject of socialism with variety.
 

Next year R&W will be 10 years old

 
but the Radical ten years older too and dying slowly.
 

He has promised that all three sites will remain FREE to VIEW.
 
But is intending to do something he has wanted to do for sometime.
 
Find out who the near 5 million views are.
 
The Morning Star does that now and has done for sometime 
 
To subscribe, a viewer has to identify themselves, 
 
giving the online service knowledge and data it could use

 
to improve its service and recruit support.
 

The Radical has decided that to view his site, readers will need to “log In”.
 
That is all at present but it is being tried to try to get more
 
viewers to communicate and contribute.
 
It is not to advertise or divulge names.

 
but if you want to view Rightsandwrongs

 
you will be invited to be more inclusive.
 

The Morning Star offers social isolators to view 20 articles free a month,

 
but it is difficult to see how that will last. 
 

Frowning on the “something for nothing society”

 
can’t last for this socialist media outlet.

 
The Market Economy has come to socialisms thinking.

 

Such a pity because the online edition could have used 

 
to recruit some of the  500,000 that 
 

JC has done by treading on wasteland and across water.
 
The Radicals one man band has been loyal to its cause

 
and hopes viewers will respond likewise,
 

that they will continue to get something for nothing.
 
Please continue to “subscribe” in a modest way to a Socialism  
 
from the comfort of your home, work or travels.
 
It is what the age of technology offers today

 
and it is changing lives dramatically without 
 

it having to cost the earth.
